Lyft without the use of Wi-Fi!

If you are like me, you not only use but rely on transportation services like Lyft, Uber, and STS to get you from place to place. Whether that be to work, or out for a night on the town, it is one of many sources of transportation that I have come to rely on a good amount of the time. However, Lyft, Uber and other ride-sharing services only operate on Wi-Fi connection. There are times when you're not able to get a signal, your phone is about to die, or there's a big storm like there just was on the East Coast (you lose power thus cancelling any future trips), but you really need a ride anyway. Without Wi-Fi, the chances are that you won't be able to get a ride, unless you're on a phone that operates on LTE when there's no Wi-Fi. But what about for those of us who don't have that option? Then you get stuck somewhere with no way home, or you can't get things done because you can't get around. 

I am 24 going on 25, but still unable to drive, and there is a very good chance I won't ever be able to because of my disability. Born with Cerebral Palsy, I have trouble with operating a car because of the reflexes you need to have. I also get distracted very easily (by other cars, by the radio, by people talking, by not being able to see the road underneath the car...), and have panic episodes while driving. This causes me to have to rely on government-funded services like Transportation America's Special Transportation Services (for the senior and disabled), and ride-sharing services like Lyft and Uber. Now that I live completely on my own, I have had to figure out how to navigate in life and this is something that has affected me personally that I would like to see changed.

I also would like to tackle pricing for disabled passengers, but for now, I will focus on this petition. It would mean the world to me if you liked, commented, shared this petition with friends and family. I know I'm not the only one who this could benefit!
